20 Must-See Tours in 2021

After the COVID-19 pandemic shut down the music industry in 2020 and part of 2021, the world began to open up for music lovers. As we got further into 2021, more and more artists began announcing the rescheduling of tour dates and launching into new tours.

With a plethora of choices available for our entertainment, American Songwriter chose 20 of the biggest tours that are must-see shows as you emerge from lockdown. From Rolling Stones and The Eagles to Luke Combs and Luke Bryan, there is no shortage of music in the upcoming months. So grab your friends, put on your best blue jeans and get ready to rock out at one of these 20 must-see tours coming this fall.

Rolling Stones, No Filter Tour

The Rolling Stones are getting back on the road to relaunch their U.S. No Filter tour, which initially kicked off in 2017, and continued on through 2019 before it was postponed by the pandemic.

“I’m so excited to get back on the stage again,” said Mick Jagger, post-lockdown at last. “And want to thank everyone for their patience. See you soon!”

In addition to the regular No Filter tour dates, the band is also scheduled to play the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival—marking the first time the band has ever played the fest—on Oct. 13 and added on additional dates in Los Angeles on Oct. 17 and Las Vegas on Nov. 6.

The Eagles, Hotel California Tour

The Eagles’ tour began in February 2020, and the band played throughout the month until COVID-19 halted the original run, pushing until September and October, then further due to ongoing concerns about the pandemic conditions. Surviving Eagles members Don Henley, Joe Walsh, Timothy B. Schmit, joined by Deacon Frey, son of the late, great Glenn Frey, and their long-time friend Vince Gill are gearing up for a 2021 run.

The Hotel California tour came about after the Eagles performed three sold-out Hotel California gigs in Las Vegas last year. The show features a full-album performance of the supergroup’s 1976 classic, with the Eagles playing alongside an orchestra and a choir, as well as a second set of the band’s greatest hits.
